extract from the preface
These stories were written for Niebuhr's little son, Marcus, and the many allusions to Rome and its neighbourhood are explained by the fact that Marcus spent the first few years of his life in the vicinity of Rome with his father. ...
I [Emma Buchheim] have not thought it necessary to enter into explanations of elementary rules of grammar, but I have given full syntactical and historical notes, and I have carefully explained every allusion.
In the vocabulary will be found every expression occurring in the text, and also the principal forms of the strong verbs. The Index contains references to all explanatory notes, mythological, geographical, and grammatical.
